Easy Peasy, Healthy Stuffed Bell Peppers!

Hey there, I have been following a few fitness blogs and they always talk about their stuffed bell peppers so I decided to give mine a try. I do follow people’s recipes but usually I improve with flavoring because I am very particular about flavoring. This is my recipe for stuffed bell peppers. I did this as a meal prep so I bought 5 big green bell peppers so I can eat each as a meal.

There is a picture for you guys. Here are the ingredients.

5 big green bell peppers by big I mean a good size

ground turkey as lean as possible, all I need was one of those boxes they sell packaged at ralphs, I do not use the ones that come wrapped like a sausage.

tomato sauce, this depends on your taste I bought the biggest can they had. I also suggest making a home made tomato sauce.

Cup of veggies, pick what you want. I used corn, mushrooms, green beans etc.

1 to 1 and a half of chicken broth, or stock, once again depends on how much flavor you want. try not to make it too salty. I used chicken stock.

Directions:

Put your bell peppers in boiling water for 5-7 mins to make them soft. Cut around the top to take out the middle part. Take them out and put them aside. Next put your chicken stock, veggies, ground turkey, a bit a salt in a bowl and cook it all together till the turkey meat is not pink anymore. Once that is done turn off the heat and add the tomato sauce. Set your oven to 350 degrees, and start putting the stuffing in the bell peppers, stuffing meaning your turkey meat. I put some tomato sauce in my pan then put the bell peppers on top and filled them up. Once I did that I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on the top of each bell pepper. You’re done! Pop it in the oven and set it for 30-35 mins. Good luck!
